Product Key Issues

Purchased Office Home & Student 2016, however product key was not readable after scratching designated area on card. Returned to Best Buy for a new card however was instructed to contact Microsoft Soft to resolve. I spent over an hour trying to resolve issue with Microsoft , however in the end I was partial satisfied . I ended up with a 2013 edition that Microsoft installed with an activation period of one year only. ( Not what I paid for) Best Buy support of this product was lacking.

Great, but...

Everyone should note that this particular product does not come with any version of Outlook. Which used to be part of the package. Microsoft (in their infinite wisdom) UN-bundled it from Office. So, if you plan om using any e-mail features, best to look for Office for Business or Office PRO. Either way, you pay more for what was a full-featured product. No fault of Best Buy or any other provider, just Microsoft themselves. Delivery was super fast and product is EXACTLY what it claims to be and, of course works perfectly.

Good product

I used up to now Excel 2003. which was great because it was very simple. All the functions that I needed were in front of my face. Now when I opened the new one Excel 2016 on my new Laptop, I was lost. It's so sophisticated that actually I couldn't use it. So if you are like me a user from an old version or a first time user, buy a book. I bought the " Microsoft Excel 2016 for Dummies" . Then by just reading the first 2 chapters I was able to use it as well as my old version. Of course, if you use that new version like I do for simple spreadsheets, it's 10 times more sophisticated that you need. But that's the only new one available. You can customize it yourself, and ignore all the functions you don't need. Being new with the usage of that product my review is a little biased. But each person has a different requirements, so I would conclude that it's a good product if you need Excel, and it will satisfy a large audience.

As expected.

Only using excel at the moment but it does what is needed with a smooth interface.
